Synopsis
Superman sees a ship landing and stops it from crashing. Opening it, he finds a boy. He takes the boy to the Department of Metahuman Affairs and its director, Sarge Steel, where the boy shows super-strength and speaks Kryptonese. The two talk and then Superman tells him he'll be back. In the morning, Superman finds the building empty. He goes to the Pentagon, and breaks in to confront Sarge Steel. Steel admits the boy is being transferred. Superman uses human means to stop the convoy, and spirits the boy away, taking him to his adoptive parents for advice on how to raise a boy from Krypton.

The Kryptonese dialog on page 11 is translated as follows: "I'm hungry." The Kryptonese dialog on the next two pages matches the subtitles.

Richard Donner was the director of "Superman: The Movie" and a lot of "Superman II", which much of this story's elements are derived from. This was Donner's first comic book work.

Synopsis
Superman and the Revenge Squad discuss the Phantom Zone criminals' takeover of Metropolis. Meanwhile the army attacks the criminals. Zod captures their leader, and wants to use him to pass along a message, that Zod will kill anyone that doesn't immediately obey him, starting with his own son, Lor-Zod (Chris) right now. But before he can, Superman rescues Chris, and the fight is on. The squad takes out several of the criminals, while Superman fights Zod. Luthor sneaks into their headquarters, killing a criminal, and starts working on one of the Phantom Zone ships. Superman rescues Lois and the captured heroes, and continues to fight Zod, but Chris intervenes. Luthor reverses the warp drive on the ship to draw the criminals back to the zone, but before he can set it to take Superman too, Lois crowns him hard. The criminals are drawn back, as is Chris, but Superman hangs onto him. The zone won't close, though, so Chris sacrifices himself to close the zone. Later, Superman has Mon-El search the zone, but Mon-El can't find Chris.

Synopsis
Young Clark Kent tries to stop a rocket from crashing. Out steps a floating boy, speaking Kryptonese, and then English. He said "Son of Jor-El," but doesn't remember anything. Clark takes him home, and the boy sees the S shield, and recognizes it as the symbol of the house of El. He doesn't remember his name, so they make one up for him: Mon-El. They both operate under cover for a while, but Mon-El starts dreaming in a weird language, and saying "You don't belong here." So together they decide to test his Kryptonian heritage by exposing him to Kryptonite. Clark takes a lead box out of the safe, but before he can open the Kryptonite, Mon-El collapses, and regains his memory, remembering he was Lar Gand. He remembers being a seeker on Daxam, and researching data from Krypton's destruction. A rocket that left just before had a message; of which all that could be made out was "Son of Jor-El." Lar decided to follow the path of that rocket, to see if any Kryptonian artifacts could be found, but when he approached Earth's solar system, a sunspot disrupted his ship, so that he crashed. Now he realizes he is dying, as lead is toxic to his people. They try to figure out what to do, when Mon-El spots the phantom zone projector, and asks to be put in the zone. Clark does so, vowing to find a cure one day.

Synopsis
Zod, Non, and Ursa are being sentenced to the Phantom Zone by the Kryptonian Council. Flashback to an earlier time. Non, Jor-El's former teacher, is reviewing his findings about the planet's internal activities, and agrees that Krypton will explode within 90 days. But the General Zod, head of the Military Defense, interrupts and has them arrested (by Ursa). Non and Jor-El are warned not to discuss the heresy, and released. Jor-El starts working on a rocketship, but Non appeals to the people of Krypton instead, with Zod and Ursa observing. Zod starts to believe what Non is saying. But Non gets abducted, and lobotomized. Zod is outraged, and goes to Jor-El to have him join them in revolt. Jor-El cannot, as the council is needed to take quick action. Zod, Ursa, and Non try to take control anyway, but are defeated. Jor-El is made to be their jailer, and now is forced to exile them to the Phantom Zone.
